GOP Rep. Phil Roe won't seek reelection [View all]

Source: The Hill

Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) announced Friday that he will not seek reelection.

"Serving East Tennesseans these past 11 years has been the honor of my life, and I will be forever grateful for the trust my friends and neighbors put in me to represent them," Roe said in a statement. "As someone who practiced medicine for over 30 years, I said I would serve five or six terms because I never intended this job to be a second career."

"After prayerful consideration, I have decided to retire at the end of the 116th Congress," he added.

Roe is one of more than two dozen GOP lawmakers to say they have chosen not to run again in 2020.
